Ronny E. Smith, 71 of Amarillo, peacefully went home August 10, 2022. No services are scheduled at this time.
On February 19, 1951. Ron was born to James and Edna Smith in Dumas, TX. Ron spoke often of his many memories of growing up right here in Amarillo. Professionally he worked several different places including Santa Fe Railroad and Levi Strauss before obtaining his bachelor’s degree, in Computer Information Systems from Wayland Baptist University. He then landed his dream job at Pantex where he became a security specialist in the I.T. Department. He truly enjoyed his work. Working at Pantex gave him some sense of doing his part for this country that he loved so dearly. Ron was a true patriot.
Ron was a very passionate man. His passions included, loving the Lord and studying the bible. He and Brenda were avid campers and went as often as possible when they we still in good health. His dogs Speckles and Molly had him wrapped around their little paws! Ron was drawn to finding ways to serve others, as of late he started delivering meals with Meals on Wheels and he always made time to visit with and spread the Lord’s word to those in which he delivered meals. Fairly recently Ron would have considered himself a wine connoisseur of sorts. It was always “wine time”. And he really enjoyed hot rodding around in his 2016 Petty Blue Doge Challenger.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Survivors include his loving wife of the home Brenda, his son Thomas Shane, his sister Denise Bevington and husband David, as well as many loving family members and friends.
You were loved, you were forgiven and now you are pain free and rejoicing which gives some peace and comfort to those of us that are still left here with tears in our eyes. Until we meet again…
